Facebook has launched a new beta service that it hopes will allow you to tap into the huge knowledge base of its users.
The new Facebook ‘Ask Question’ feature has a button on your home page and allows you to ask a question to all 500 million Facebook users at once for the answer.
You can add photos to your question or even create a poll of answers for people to use. You can also tag your question, allowing you to target users with that interest and hopefully the knowledge to help you out.
Once posted your question is then viewable by anyone on the Internet so just be careful the questions are not too personal.
Similar services have already been in use from Yahoo and a new recently launched system from Ask.com, but with 500 million potential brains to tap into, Facebook hopes this will give them the edge.
